Got an email that a large angel shark, about 70+ inches long and estimated at 80 pounds, was caught from the Huntington Beach Pier on Sunday, 2/6.

Both figures seem a little high (listed in resource books to 68.9 inches) but no matter the exact figures, that's one large/huge angel shark. Waiting to see if there might be a picture.

Pictured below is an angel shark taken by PFIC member Gordo Grande (Ross Kestin) during a PFIC Get Together in 2008 at the Avila Pier.
